11.03.2011 -- Few words about archeology

Beitrag von danet »

So, as I understood, a lot of players don't get the archeology thing, so I talked to old russian players and searched russian forum to give some advise about how to search artifacts.
It is known that different types of artifacts can be found in different combs:
In home comb you can find local and comb artifacts;
In central comb - military artifacts;
In neutral comb - alliance and complex artifacts.

Players think that there are some strategies which can increase the probability of finding artifacts, for example in russian FAQ it is written that to find smth
in home comb you should make groups of 1,5 - 3k of archeologers in each;
in central comb - 5-15k in each group;
in neutral comb - 15k+ in each group.
And send it for the maximal time of course.

That doesn't mean that if you send 2 groups 20k archeologers in each to the neutral comb you will definitely find 2 biggest artifacts from the first time, it means that using this strategy you will increase your chances to find it in the long-time period.

I hope this information will help you!

all good and well, but there must be a formula describing the way in which probabilities are calculated, any chance of getting that, or is it a big secret? ^^

Ever heard of the Phrase "Total Random"? :D

It happend already that you find with 2 Archeologist a Perfect Comb Artifact.
I guess there are Chances for every artifact which you can find, so you only need to be a bit lucky ;)

no chance in hell this only depends on luck. There is a certain algorithm involved that calculates the odds of finding an artifact. I am 100% sure that 10 x 1000 Archeologists find more artifacts than 10 000 x 1... ;)

There are formulas which I can't open - prohibited =) You can do whatever you think is true, I only gave the recomendations from russian old players and information from russian FAQ =)
